Having healthy teeth can significantly improve your well-being and quality of life. However, missing teeth can negatively affect your self-esteem and may also lead to dental problems. Fortunately, Daniel Wank DDS offers dental implants to replace missing teeth and improve your smile.
Here are the benefits of dental implants:
Dental implants resemble natural tooth
A dental implant with a prosthetic tooth attached to it seems entirely natural. Since the prosthetic tooth is positioned flush with the gum line, no one will be able to tell which of your teeth are natural and which are replacements.
Dental implants are low-maintenance
Dental implants are simple to maintain since they need the same care as natural teeth, such as twice-daily brushing and flossing, routine dental checkups, and visits to the hygienist. Most people believe you do not need to clean implants since biological elements do not form them. However, this is far from reality. Dental implants can still develop plaque and tartar, gum disease, and infections without the proper care, just like natural teeth.
They are durable
Dental implants have a very long lifespan. If you practice good oral hygiene, your implant should last you a lifetime, but you should replace the implant’s crown every 15 years due to wear and tear. On the other hand, your complete bridge will require replacement every five to fifteen years, depending on how well you maintain it. Due to bone loss in your jaw, dentures need to be changed every five to eight years. Additionally, to maintain optimum fit, they require frequent modifications. Because implants are durable and don’t need to be adjusted, you will ultimately save money. Once your implants are in, they are really easy to use.
Dental implants enable you to talk, eat and laugh with confidence.
The confidence of a person can frequently be impacted by tooth loss and wearing dentures. The ability to smile may be affected by missing teeth, and people who wear dentures often mention that they worry about their dentures sliding during conversation or laughter. When you have dental implants or dentures that are attached to them with implants, your jaw bone holds them in place and prevents them from moving, allowing you to go about your day completely confident in your smile.
Dental implants will not restrict your diet
One of the most common complaints related to tooth loss or wearing dentures is that individuals are forced to change their diets because their bites are either less efficient or the dentures don’t remain in place well enough to allow them to eat foods like apples or steak.
Most patients can eat and normally drink once dental implants are stabilized.
Dental implants effectively prevent bone deterioration
Losing bone mass at the site of a missing tooth is one of the adverse consequences of losing a tooth. This is because there is no longer a root to promote the ossification and strengthening of the bone. A dental implant induces the formation of new bone by being inserted into your jawbone. This may help avoid future bone loss.
